Cure Acid Reflux and Your Gall Bladder Will Thank You

Mar 5, 2008
There is a close association with the problem of acid reflux and your gall bladder. As it is the bile that this part of your body stores, which will normally be released back in to the esophagus because a valve at the bottom is unable to close properly. Before we take a look at gall bladder disease (GERD) let us learn a bit about what the function of the gall bladder is.

It is a small sack (pear shaped) that is to be found between the lobes of the liver directly below them. Within this there is a small duct (y shaped) which is the common bile duct and it is this that carries bile from the liver and gall bladder into a person's small intestines.

When we eat food the fats contained within them are taken into a person's digestive system and a hormone is released. When this hormone is released the gall bladder then releases bile (that the liver has produced) and it works on digesting the fats you have consumed. This then allows the necessary nutrients within the fats to be broken down and so that they can pass through the intestinal wall into your bloodstream. These are then passed onto the cells within your body and which help your body to function correctly.

However, acid reflux will occur as the valve in the gall bladder, which prevents the bile from entering the esophagus, is malfunctioning. This in turn results in the burning sensation that one often feels when you have a bout of heartburn or you suffer from acid reflux. In most cases the more mild forms of acid reflux known as heartburn can be quickly and easily treated using an over the counter antacid treatment. However, for those who suffer from more severe bouts of acid reflux then other medication may well need to be prescribed for them by their doctor.

As mentioned those whose acid reflux is only mild generally find that using antacid medications helps to relieve the symptoms associated with this condition. But if you choose to ignore the problem then you may well find that you will have to go to your doctor and be prescribed with a much stronger type of medication instead. However, antacids are successful in a large number of cases because they help to neutralize the acids that the body is producing. This in turn means that a person is far less likely to experience the painful and certainly uncomfortable symptoms that one associates with acid reflux.

For those people who find that antacids are ineffective at treating their condition then they may well find that their doctor chooses to give them histamine antagonist medication instead. Although they work in the same way as antacids do, they are much more powerful kind of medication so they not only help to relieve the symptoms quickly, but generally for much longer as well.

As well as the medications we have mentioned above a great number of people who suffer from acid reflux are also using natural remedies. One of the main reasons for this is that they are much less expensive and they feel that they are actually much safer to use.

But when it does come to you treating the problems of acid reflux and your gall bladder then you should first speak with your doctor about the matter. Through them they will be able to devise the best course of treatment for your particular problem and which will in turn result in your symptoms and problems being a lot less difficult to cope with.
